Thanks to generous sponsors, the John Lorenz Veterans Concert Fund will make this free annually.

The Willamette Master Chorus is offering free concert tickets to all current and former service members, Gold Star Parents and Spouses for their Annual Veterans concert November 11 & 12, 2023. This year marks our 19th annual Veterans Concert. The event will take place at Smith Auditorium on the Willamette University campus at 3:00 pm each day with open seating. This free ticket benefit will be reoccurring each year on or near Veterans’ Day as the Chorus continues to celebrate and honor Veterans. This year’s concert will have a Viet Nam era theme with music of the 70s and 80s and will feature Portland’s jazz/pop/rock singer Marilyn Keller. She will be sharing the stage with the 85 member Chorus under the direction of Dr. Paul Klemme.
